For this manicure, I started out with a base of Maybelline Sunshine and stamped with Bundle Monster plate BM-316 using Zoya Dovima. Dovima is a black matte polish and generally matte polishes tend to dry quickly which made me nervous to stamp with it, but it turned out well. Unfortunately, even though it stamped well, it did not turn out as as dark as had hoped it would...
To accent the manicure, I used a small yellow flower which I got from the Born Pretty Store. Again, I was hoping that the stamping would turn out darker, so the flower would pop better against the dark, but I guess that just gives me an excuse to try and create the mani I have in my head again...
The dried flowers from The Born Pretty Store come in a set of 12 little jars. Six jars with small single flowers and six jars with larger cluster flowers. I've used the cluster flowers already here and thought it would be fun to try out the single flowers...
Each jar of colorful single flower jars contains 5 little flowers. I somehow got lucky and ended up with six yellow ones. They are such a cute little accent to a manicure...
Maybelline Sunshine is a bright yellow cream. It starts out a bit streaky and thin, but builds up and evens out nicely with three coats. It dries slightly darker than the bottle color. This is three coats with a top coat...

As a final note, I would like to say how amazing Bundle Monster customer service is. When I purchased my 3rd set, a few of the plates had issues, one of them being the BM-316 with the pattern used today. It is lightly warped and makes a clicking sound like a bottle cap. I was not able to get a clean image with it and upon emailing Bundle Monster they sent out a replacement right away with no questions asked. This is quite a refreshing change from a certain other manufacturer that insisted their plates "should" stamp well despite the fact that I was having issues with them. It is something I will consider very strongly when making future purchases. I'm really impressed with Bundle Monster!
I'd love to know what you think of this!
Thanks for looking!
